News: UNGLUE KIDS FROM ONLINE ADDICTION BY EMPOWERING THEM TO MAKE THE BEST ONLINE CHOICES



 

Los Angeles, CA (February 3, 2017) — When we were kids, finishing all your homework or cleaning up your room might be rewarded with a whole hour to play outside with friends or some allowance money! Today’s wired kids may be enticed to bring down the dirty laundry and set the dinner table with the prize of precisely 30 minutes of Internet access – to be used on their smartphone, tablet, or laptop. This teaches kids that time is money. That’s because mom or dad can now completely control a child’s time and access on the Internet with a clever service, appropriately called, unGlue.

There is no denying that children have been glued to their screens for some time. Kids today spend an average of 6.5 hours per day in front of screens, outside of school activities! Starting at a very young age kids enjoy watching, playing and chatting — typically on multiple devices. That’s the new electronic reality. They watch YouTube, chat on Snapchat, like on Instagram, and build on Minecraft. Parents, on the other hand, want to limit the time they spend on those and balance it with other activities.

“The digital world is an important part of our kids’ life,” explains unGlue CEO and co-founder Alon Shwartz who is also a father of three. “As parents, we need to have a way to balance screen time with their other activities. We created unGlue to enable parents to define the total online ‘fun time’ their kids can spend in a day. At the same time, it allows their kids to decide how and when to spend it. Everyone wins.”

The simple-to-use service works across all devices including smartphones, tablets and computers without the need to install anything on any device! It also works whether kids are home or on the go. Parents create Internet schedules for each child (for example: Olivia can use the Internet between 6am and 10pm). Then, within those schedules, mom or dad can limit the amount of minutes each child can spend on videos, social media, and games each day. unGlue coins it “Entertainment Time.” When they run out of Entertainment Time, they can still access the Internet, do homework, listen to music, and check the weather. They just can’t watch anymore cat videos or chat until the next day.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) “recommends that parents and caregivers develop a family media plan that takes into account the health, education and entertainment needs of each child”. unGlue provides parents with this media plan via internet schedules, Entertainment Time limits, Chores, and Time Bank.

Targeted at kids ages 6 and up, unGlue is free (for now) and can monitor any iOS or Android mobile devices, and any number of WiFi home devices such as computers, tablets, game consoles, and so on. To get started parents can download the unGlue app from the App Store. Android support is coming in February 2017.

To support WiFi devices at home, parents have the choice of downloading the unGlue Home Monitor software onto a single desktop computer (hardwired, not a laptop) to control all devices at home. If families don’t have a computer with a permanent Internet wire connection, the unGlue Puck can be purchased for $30 through the app during the setup process.

Ho ho ho! Just in time for holiday downloads, Clever Dragons Learning Apps announces the arrival of an Early Learners Bundle with a full version of the new Dragon Egg Kindergarten Game, plus six other apps designed especially for young children. Buy the bundle save over 40% compared with purchasing each title separately.

The Dragon Egg series offers a unique approach to app-based learning. In each title, children nurture a baby dragon egg, helping it to explore its environment, including the Dragon School, which is filled with age-appropriate learning. In Dragon Egg Kindergarten, kids will find alphabet, counting, beginning reading, and science challenges in the schoolhouse, along with music and animal electives. Mini-games build fine motor skills and earn “Gold” which can then be used to personalize the egg, with colors and accessories, including our newly added Santa hat.

 

Other apps in the Early Learners bundle include:

 

✓ Kindergarten Reading — listen to each word read aloud, then select the matching written word. Twelve levels of increasing challenge that advance with your learner!

 

✓ First Grade Reading — match pictures to written words, with or without audio cues.

 

✓ Learn the Alphabet — form fundamental connections for reading and writing by matching uppercase letters with their lowercase counterparts.

 

✓ Skip Counting — have fun counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s while building numeracy skills used later in multiplication

 

✓ Zoo Animals — a fun, fast-paced quiz all about animals!

 

✓ Dog Breeds — learn over 45 common breeds, including favorite furry friends like goldens, poodles, pugs, chihuahuas, and more!

 

All content is available within each app, with no in-app purchases or internet connection required — ideal for playing on-the-go.

News: Sen.se Launches GuardPeanut Portable Security Monitor

News: Sen.se Launches GuardPeanut Portable Security Monitor

Second IoT Sensor in SensePeanut Product Line Makes Keeping Tabs on Belongings and Valuables, in Any Situation, Simple and Affordable for All

guardpeanut-laptop

Dec. 2, 2016 –PARIS–Sen.se, an early pioneer of the Internet of Things industry, today announced the availability of GuardPeanut™, an affordable, portable smart sensor that can be placed on any valuable or prized possession to provide notifications and automatic sound alerts when the item has been tampered with, on the verge of being stolen or moved. The intuitive tag follows the launch of ThermoPeanut and is the second sensor in the new SensePeanut product line, which has introduced a completely new generation of IoT technologies by drastically simplifying various connected capabilities and making smart awareness devices accessible to all. Priced at $29, each SensePeanut has its own set function, task or habit it can monitor,allowing anyone with a smartphone or tablet to take advantage of the connected life revolution through manageable and affordable products.

“After bringing our thermometer sensor ThermoPeanut to the market, it was apparent that there is massive interest amongst consumers for light IoT devices that are as simple and straightforward to use as your smartphone, have many uses and don’t cost hundreds of dollars,” said Rafi Haladjian, Founder and CEO of Sen.se. “GuardPeanut is the perfect sensor to launch next because we all have possessions that we want to keep tabs on while we are away. Whether you want to protect your laptop from theft while you refill your mug at a coffee shop, have a suspicion that your roommate is borrowing your clothes without asking or want to monitor your front door to make sure the kiddos actually come home by curfew, GuardPeanut is the must-have, portable solution that will make sure you know when your valuable items are moved.”

How It Works

GuardPeanut allows anyone from tech enthusiasts to novices to monitor any object in or outside the home including purses, suitcases, jewelry boxes, laptops, strollers, safes, cookie jars,lockers and other prized possessions or items they want to keep an eye on. It also allows users to track the comings and goings of pets and people when it is attached to a front door or pet door. The sensor connects via Bluetooth 4.0 to smartphones and tablets through its dedicated iOS or Android SensePeanut app. Once registered, the GuardPeanut can be attached to any desired object to track movement. Users have control of when the tag monitors their items by simply pressing the GuardPeanut tag on and off as needed. The sensor can also be reused to track different objects as monitoring needs change.

If the item being tracked is tampered with, moved or opened, GuardPeanut produces a sound alert and sends an app notification or sound alarm directly to any registered device within 200 feet. For example, if a stroller is moved while a family is on the other side of the park, they will be notified both through their phones and a sound alert from the stroller that there is an issue. If users are outside of range, they can check their app when they are back within range for a record of movement that has been detected throughout the day. This option is optimal for homeowners interested in checking when people have entered or left their home,while they are at work. They can simply attach the GuardPeanut to their main home entrance and view a full report of activity at the end of the day.

Advanced Features

In addition to receiving notifications in the app and being able to review reports on movement, the SensePeanut app allows users to set advanced functions and features. Additional customizations include:

  • Movement sensitivity –Users have the flexibility to set the sensitivity of the motion detector in GuardPeanut.
    On demand sound alerts –Through the app, individuals can trigger their GuardPeanut to make a sound, making it easier to find the location of an item that might have been moved or misplaced.
  • Choice of sound alerts –GuardPeanut offers different sound and volume options through the app, so users can customize their experience depending on their needs. If they are tracking when their shop door is opened,they can activate the subtle bell greeting. For those tracking their valuables to prevent theft, they can program the GuardPeanut to make aloud siren noise, when their item is moved. When sound is not required, GuardPeanut and its notifications can be muted at any time.
  • Third-party interventions –GuardPeanut is IFTTT compatible, allowing users to create rules around when an item is moved or opened. For instance, if the front door is opened,the front lights can automatically turn on,a home security camera can start filming or a message can be sent through text message, email or social channels.
  • Data exports–It offers unlimited data storage within the secure cloud, allowing data to be exported to Excel and CSV files anytime. This setting is valuable for storeowners that want to track the flow of customers over a period of time by showing when their store door is opened the most.
  • Multiple devices –Each GuardPeanut can be paired with multiple smartphones and tablets. When a motion is detected, notifications will be sent to the closest authorized devices. All other devices using the same account will be able to receive notifications and check the timeline of events when they are back in range.
  • Home hubs –As any smartphone or tablet can be used as a hub, GuardPeanut can provide actionable data and alerts to multiple users even when they are miles from home.

Availability

GuardPeanut is available today for $29 on Sen.se and Amazon.com. Additional retailers will be announced at a later date. It comes in the color green with an additional color cover option included in the package, along with all necessary accessories including a Peanut holder, self-adhesive tape, attachment ring and a single, replaceable CR2032 battery that will run for up to four months. Additional sensors in the SensePeanut range will launch in late 2016 and early 2017.
